Ascetic

Asceticism is one of the main beliefs identified by Weber regarding Calvinism which encouraged followers to lead a frugal lifestyle without indulging in life’s pleasures. This aided capitalism to grow as it encouraged making money and reinvesting it in their businesses. (See Protestant Ethic for more details regarding Weber’s book).
